Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    How about a Christmas tune? It is the day after TG after all! I did this tune about two years ago, pretty much improvised but in fingerstyle which I am not a pro at... But anyway, I thought it turned out decent. Played on my L5 through an amp with a bit of hiss. This was before I got into computer recording.

    Love it!! Not sure if you checked out my holiday wishes w/music thread here, but I am a sucker for this stuff. So much so that what started a few years ago as a Christmas present for my mom, turned into a 17 song CD. :lol:
    It just seems that these are great songs and lend themselves to solo style on guitar. I think your fingerstyle is terrific. I am doing a bastardized finger/thumb combination thing, kind of whatever comes naturally and make it work decently. I keep saying that I am going to get serious about this style and develope it. Maybe someday.
    I will probably post some more throughout the season.

    Peace,
    Duffy

    Thanks Norm,

    While I'm starting to get in the holiday mood, I haven't gotten into the "mall" frame of mind yet! LOL

    Hope to see you this week. I'll call you about Wednesday when I find out if we are on.

    Jim
